By Councilmember and Mayoral Candidate Julie Pace,
A critical issue is the split in votes to reduce setbacks from 20 feet to 10 feet for view and combo fences along 14 miles of our roads, which will reduce visual open space and create a tunneling effect.
As one PV resident said, this will forever change the character of our town from Paradise Valley to “Paradise Alley” if open space is reduced along 14 miles of our roads. Cynthia and Randy Buness, PV Independent, Dec. 8, 2021.
Our town’s Planning Commission unanimously voted 7 to 0 against the reduction in setbacks, which the town staff had recommended. Planning Commission meeting minutes, Oct. 5, 2021.
